No Sew Bunny Gnome

No-Sew Bunny Gnome made using the New Xyron Glue Gun.

This Bunny Gnome was made using a couple of inexpensive girl socks from Dollar Tree.

The instructions for the Bunny Gnome are very similar to how I made the Valentine Gnome.

I filled the bottom of the sock with 1/3 cup of rice and filled the rest with poly-fil.

The top of the sock was tied tight with a piece of string and I added a small dab of glue from

my New Xyron Glue Gun to secure it.  I added a faux fur beard, a sock hat with a little

poly-fil added for shape and cute little felt ears.

Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun

Enabler Alert…

Xyron has come out with three New glue guns.  This one pictured above is what I used to create the No-Sew Bunny Gnome.  One of my favorite features is that you can add up to three glue sticks so that you don’t have to keep reloading while you work.  How cool is that?

DIY No Sew Valentine Gnome

How to Make a No-Sew Valentine Gnome using Dollar Store Socks.

Love Gnomes? Love Fun Socks?

Put them together for a fun and inexpensive Valentine’s Day project.

I stopped at Dollar Tree the other day to look around for “stuff” and found some super cute

valentine’s day socks. They gave me the idea to make a Valentine’s Day Gnome.

I carried around a pair for a while but ended up deciding I wanted a smaller Gnome.

I found these little girls’ striped socks, which were the perfect size for my small Gnome.

Directions:

  • I used two sizes of little girls’ short socks. I originally cut both of the socks but later changed my mind. (I’ll explain later.)
  • Cut the larger sock at the heel, as shown in the image.

  • Place the 1/3 cup of rice into the sock and add poly-fil.
  • Tightly tie the sock closed with a piece of twine.
  • Add a dab of glue over the knotted string and cut away the excess material.

  • Cut two 1/2″ x 4″ pieces of faux fur.  (approximately)
  • Tie a piece of ribbon around the middle of each strip.
  • Glue the strips to the top of the filled sock.

  • To make the Gnome Nose: Cut the white toe section off a second larger sock and place a small bit of poly-fil into the end. Tie tightly with string and cut the excess off.
  • Add a small bit of glue over the knot.
  • For the clothes:  Cut the rest of the striped section off the sock and place it over the sock body.
  • This is where I changed my mind. If you look at the picture above, you can see that the hat was too small for the Gnome. I used the full “smaller” sock to make the hat. I folded the heel into the back and added a small dab of glue to make it look like a fold.

  • I used a makeup brush and bronzer powder to add color to the nose.

  • Glue the nose onto the front of the Gnome slightly over the top of the clothing.
  • Tie the end of the sock with a piece of twine to create a pom-pom.
  • Create a small bow from the pink ribbon and glue it onto the knot.
  • Place hat onto the Gnome and add a dab of glue under the rim to keep it in place.
  • Cut two small pieces of felt for the shoes and glue under the body of the Gnome.

With all the fun and colorful socks available in stores nowadays, just think of all the fun you can have while personalizing your Gnome.
